‘A perfect blend of the two greatest pleasures in life – love and gardening!’ Fern Britton
From spring to summer, autumn to winter, a lot can happen in a single year . . .
Tilly is in desperate need of a fresh start, ideally with fresh air and a fresh attitude to match. Hidden secrets lurk in her past and moving to a new town seems like the best way to get a much needed second chance. Finally, it feels like fate is on her side. She takes on a plot at Ivy Lane allotments – where she assumes peace and quiet await – but life has different plans…
The small community at Ivy Lane is anything but quaint. The members are far from reserved and soon draw Tilly out of her shell, teaching her everything they know about friendship, love and letting go. And with a love interest waiting in the wings, Tilly may find that new love can grow in scorched earth.
As the seasons change, can her new friends prove to Tilly that time really is a healer?
A charming and romantic story certain to make you smile - perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Trisha Ashley and Katie Fforde.
